You have come a long way since Halo.
I have 12 ducks (SQ Runners & BQ Calls), 11 Cochin Bantams, 16 Silkies (mostly SQ), 17 OEGB, 2 SQ White Ameraucanas, 1 EE Bantam, 5 adult quail, 7 baby quail, 3 Hybrid layer hens, 1 mixed bantam layer, 6 juvenile chicks (EE & OE) growing out, 1 freshly hatched Serama & 1 freshly hatched OEGB...think that totals 83 birds at the moment if I counted everyone right without looking in the cages.
2 bators running. 1 due the 28th with 49 Rainbow layers in it, the other staggered hatch with 11 quail due 1/23-2/2 & 39 chicks (11 of mine & 28 rainbow layers) due on 2/5 that were set yesterday. I'll be setting new batches aproximately once per week until fall then I will set whatever the girls give me that is extra that the kids don't eat just to keep a few chicks on hand for the winter for the people I get calls from saying "Something just killed all my chickens, do you have any chicks/birds available"
